In an age where cyber threats loom large and data breaches can wreak havoc on organizations of all sizes, governments are increasingly taking steps to mitigate what can be incredibly damaging liability for those entities that continue to fall victim to cybersecurity incidents—Florida being the most recent example.
In the ever-evolving digital landscape, the sophistication of cybersecurity advances runs in parallel with the advancing cyberattacks. Among these varied threats, ransomware, and what can be its devastating impact, remains a prominent concern as it becomes clear that no organization is safe.
Recently, the UK National Security Centre (NCSC) and the US Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA)—along with other groups from around the world—released the Guidelines for Secure AI System Development.
Like all evolutions in technology, quantum computing promises to revolutionize problem-solving and to do so at speeds that are unimaginable for classic computers we know. However, this technological advancement also poses a significant threat to our current cryptographic systems and algorithms that underpin how the world protects and verifies information.
Though perhaps not as prominent as the widely known Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) and Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) certifications, the Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge (CCSK) can also be helpful to cybersecurity professionals.
After 22 grueling hours of negotiations, policymakers within the European Union (EU) have reached a provisional agreement on new rules to govern the most powerful artificial intelligence (AI) models. They’re calling it the EU AI Act, and though yes—the provisions have been hashed out—disagreements surrounding the law enforcement of said provisions have led to a recess in the negotiations.
The European Union (EU) has made significant strides lately in shaping cybersecurity regulation—new developments include those related to the NIS2 Directive, the EU Cybersecurity Act, the EU Cloud Services Cybersecurity Scheme (EUCS), and the EU Cyber Resilience Act.
When considering cybersecurity, many may first think of cutting-edge tech companies. Healthcare providers may spring to mind for others and government agencies for still others. But strong cybersecurity—if it’s not already—is becoming paramount in every sector, and if the recent attacks tell us anything, it’s now paramount for universities as well.
